method: acting (the psychology of attainment) | a poem by a faust


  method: acting
  (or, the psychology of attainment)
 
 
 
 only thinking other things
 can you try for Heaven's Fire
 -- but then, the thoughts that 'trying' brings
  set you apart from your Desire:
 
  you hesitate
  you stop, you rest,
  you cannot choose your heart's Delight:
 
  is it failure?
  or...success?
 
  soon, mistaking thought itself for light;
  habit gets (expects) a tragedy
 (almost sweet again the pain it wrings)
 
  ...but:
 
  YOU
  remember
  ECSTASY
 
  and
  practice
  thinking
  other
  things...
 
 
 

 by a female faust
 written circa 1991, revised 2015
 

 

with much love for faithandmusic for making available the wonders of evolution
this revision is dedicated to a second chance




Be seeing you.
